My husband and I went there for our anniversary. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. There cocktail menu is long and adventurous. Our drink order took more than 15 min. , however our waitress compt us free champagne and a free dessert to share. The food is decadent and delicious. You can tell the ingredients are fresh. I had the shrimp and grits. It was rich and creamy and the shrimp were cooked perfectly and fresh. The cream brulee dessert is out of this world!!!It was a little pricey for some entrees, but understandable as the ingredients are top quality.We would go back:-)

Came in on a Saturday night and enjoyed it so much, we decided to go back the following Wednesday. The cocktails are made with care, the meals are wonderful, and the maple-bacon creme brulee is heaven on earth! We will be back for Tuesday night breakfast-for-dinner!

A couple of basic items on the menu were not available...Meat Loaf was one. Also, they were not able to make Bloody Marys! What full bar in the world is out of bloody mary mix!?! Service was slow and not very attentive. We were a group of friends who used to work together who were getting together to have lunch, visit, and catch up. We'll never go to Barrel Aged again.

This is the 2nd year in a row that we went to Barrel Aged for Mother's Day brunch. The staff is VERY gracious, and works hard to make sure that your dining experience is pleasant. The food was delicious, and the drinks were devine. This place is a gem in downtown Martinez.

we happened to go on a Thursday night and had a blast playing trivia with the crowd. Food was great and we were made to feel right at home.

We love Barrel Aged! We have gone here for birthdays, Mother's Day and their spirit/beer educations. We have just gone in for drinks and appetizers, as well as, hitting the outside seating after work. If you come to Martinez for a meal, make it Barrel Aged.

AMAZING drinks, INCREDIBLE food! Make reservations if you plan on going because it's pretty small inside. Highly recommend!

Only issue was the hours are wrong in opentable.

The food in this place is simply amazing! Try the blue cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon. The fried double stuffed oreos were also a real treat. The garlic fries are very tasty. I can't say enough great things about the food here. A real hidden gem of a restaurant in Martinez. Thank you to my brother Michael and Clayton for taking me there!! Awesome...

Barrel Aged was a very pleasant surprise. It is a charming place on Main Street in Martinez. They had live music on Friday night, and they were lively but you could still talk. The service was very good. The waitress was attentive even though we were waiting for another person. If you go, you must try the fried pickles. The food was delicious, but the pear salad was extremely dry, which didn't work well with the bitter arugula. However, one of the diners with me said it was the best BLT sandwich she'd ever had in her life. (Order it on sourdough!)
